Simon Fell > Its just code > preview API

Friday, April 4, 2003

Sam has updated his comment API to support a preview mode. Whilst I normally agree with what Sam writes regarding Web Services, this one just doesn't sit right with me, it smells very RPCish going against Sams own messaging message. It seems to me, that it ought to be that you send the same message to a different URI to do preview, not tag in a SOAP header. Is this a solution looking for a problem ? I look forward to seeing how this one pans out.
